My personal experience in transforming my health through nutrition and lifestyle changes has given me a passion for helping others to do the same. One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to nutrition.

Reflexology

I am a qualified nurse with over 30 years of experience working with both adults and children.  I qualified as a Reflexologist in 1994 and have experience in treating people of all ages.   I feel passionate about the positive outcomes that Reflexology can bring and the power within the human body to heal itself.  Reflexology can stimulate the body to start this healing process while the recipient enjoys a relaxing treatment on their feet.

Reiki 

I am a qualified Reiki Master and have practiced Reiki for over 12 years. I live in awe of the miraculous results I get to see on people and animals. Many people have never experienced complete inner peace until they try Reiki.

Available to buy through Amazon and selected bookstores.
